Default Lookin good

Nice demo job.
Just make sure you can get the tub in the room while all the framing is open. I would also change out any galvanized waste lines in the area, they tend to clog up.
Have fun.

Alrighty!

We got the RedGard up in the shower...I was going to do just the joints but I had so much extra RedGard I did the whole shower...

We also got the texture on the walls and two coats of PVA up...it's starting to look like a real room...woohoo!!!

Pics to come this evening...
